Admission Requirements

One measure of the success of a doctoral program is the quality of students applying to the program. We use a multi-dimensional approach for evaluating students.

Recommended GRE/GPA Scores

  • 1000 (old scoring system) or
  • 310 (new scoring system)
  • Undergraduate (and Graduate, if applicable) GPA could impact admission.

Submission Criteria

  • Letters of reference from professors and employers
  • Membership in professional organizations
  • Involvement in research activities
  • Relevant job experience
  • Personal characteristics such as bilingual status or experience working with individuals with disabilities.
  • Essay outlining goals, research interests, and skills.

Application reviews occur in December. Full program faculty and a graduate student select students for interviews in early January. On-campus interviews start at the beginning of February.

Admission Interviews

Expect a formal interview, informative sessions, and interaction with faculty and graduate students.  Applicants also will have the opportunity to see the campus, clinics, and the community. 

For students coming from out of state, we try to subsidize the cost of travel.

Post-Interview Process

Admitted students must notify us in writing by April 15 of their intent to enroll the following fall. 

Students who enter the program are assigned a student mentor and a temporary advisor.
